Liverpool Female Orphan Asylum

Hello Rob,

I very much hope you are able to help me.

I have discovered a reference to a relative in 1858 who was resident a the Liverpool Female Orphan Asylum.  I cannot find where this institution was situatied or where the records as currently held.  I would be very grateful for any assistance you may be able to offer.
